1 Part II: Strategic Planning for a Successful 1:1 Program
Dr. Michael Gielniak Director of Programs & Development Great Lakes 1:1 Computing Conference December 3, 2010 1

2 Purposes of Session Provide action steps for: vision, planning, development and launch of one to one program Define critical leadership lessons learned, best practices and templates for program success Provide forum for questioning, discussing, and reflecting

3 Needed: A Roadmap Shared Vision Strategic action plan
Personnel roles, responsibilities Embedded professional learning Communications Timelines Benchmarks Evaluation (monitoring/adjusting)

4 Initial Considerations
Curriculum aligned to standards & Benchmarks Formative Assessment Leadership/Program Management Technology Readiness Survey Planning 4

5 1:1 Implementation The Planning Process

6 1. Planning Well designed plan for implementation & sustainability
Participants: Principals, Teachers, Technology Coordinators & Curriculum Directors (along with parents, students, local community members) Vision, mission, goals, milestones, resources, roles, responsibilities, monitoring, evaluation Develop a shared vision!

7 2. Leadership Full principal support & involvement
Ongoing PD for leading school reform Scheduled team meetings Observations Communications Leading second order change in schools Digital Funding Integration Tools L

8 3. Tech Prep & Support A solid technology infrastructure and maintenance/service plan Connectivity and access points Support policies and procedures Charging and storing On-Site presence by Tech. personnel Developing ability of teachers and students to troubleshoot

9 4. Professional Learning and Development
Regularly scheduled for administrators, teachers and tech personnel Coaching/Mentoring Model Changing the classroom culture Focus on curricular integration Dedicated time & resources L

10 High Quality & Robust Professional Learning
System-wide Ongoing Consistently planned, scheduled, engaged Network with professional community-state, country and world-wide

11 Communication

12 5. Communications Sharing information with key audiences
Internal – Teachers, Librarians, Students, Custodial, Bus Drivers, Tech Support, Curriculum Director, Board Members, Support Staff External – Parents/Guardians, Local Media, Legislators, Businesses

13 6. Policies Policies and procedures guided by instructional goals and documented Board assurance agreement Student acceptable use Remain flexible – you may learn some things that influence you to move policies in a different direction

14 7. Assistance Seek help from others Demonstration Sites Lead Teachers
SuperCoaches Regional Support Research other program ‘lessons learned’ Vendor partner Other districts/states

15 8. Expectation Management
On average, the research says that it takes 3-5 years for teachers to effectively and seamlessly integrate technology and instruction Student achievement will not increase as a result of having 24/7 technology Student achievement will increase, over time, when an adopted curriculum and instructional program is integrated with 24/7 technology

16 9. Program Evaluation An objective, outside research organization is needed to provide consistent and focused results relative to program goals Need to be accountable and responsible for reaching benchmarks, adjusting program as needed Need to build sustainable models

17 Facilitating Change

18 Guidelines & Checklists
Infrastructure and Implementation

19 Resource Redeployment
Financial Planning Resource Redeployment

20 Dynamic Technology Planning Program (DTPP)


22 Building Capacity Create a professional development plan
Plan and create timeline for building level training (principal, teachers, and tech support) Plan for lead teacher training Plan for community presentations

23 Program Evaluation 1) Collect baseline data
Create a program assessment plan and timeline Create program goals 1) Collect baseline data 2) Develop assessment protocol and tools

24 Infrastructure Planning
Create an implementation timeline 1) Wireless network testing 2) Bandwidth capacity testing in pilot class Plan for securing signed AUPs Plan for the distribution of devices to students

25 1:1 Implementation Checklist
Identification of a district one-to-one program committee and meeting schedule District leadership planning session (Superintendent, Curriculum Director, Principal, technology director, teacher leaders) Plan and create timeline for building the appropriate infrastructure

26 Infrastructure Checklist: Building Level
Computing device for each student in the classroom Plan and provide onsite technical support Develop relationship with vendor(s) Provide one extra device for every 10 laptops (replacements for service)

27 Infrastructure Checklist: Building Level (continued)
Provide a charging cart for each classroom Provide two battery packs for each laptop Plan and provide accidental damage and theft insurance for all computing devices Provide laptop for each teacher involved

28 Infrastructure Checklist: District
Dedicated server space sufficient to handle the capacity of the program. All students and teachers should have their own folder on this network server. Enough access points to ensure wireless connectivity for all students in the one-to-one learning space at the same time. An appropriate firewall, virus protection and content filter.

29 Infrastructure Checklist: District (continued)
Sufficient technology personnel to support the one-to-one program. Safe and Secure Communication & Community Building Tools with Web 2.0 functionality Data Collection, Management & Reporting An established relationship with the device vendor and teacher access to their help desk and other support.

30 Infrastructure Checklist: District (continued)
A support plan that facilitates quick response to repairs and other technical questions that is easily communicated to teachers in the program. Appropriate device preparation that includes a good image, adjustment of all settings, a device identification method, and loading and testing all program software. Appropriate damage and theft insurance.

31 Implementation Tips Implement fully in at least one classroom
Train at least two teachers initially Train at least one trainer (lead teacher) in each building prior to full building implementation
